Gentiva Health Services acquires Harden Healthcare

Gentiva Health Services Inc., the largest provider of home health and hospice services in the United States based on revenue, announced the closing of its acquisition of Harden Healthcare Holdings Inc. Under the terms of the merger agreement, Gentiva acquired Harden’s home health, hospice and community care businesses, including Harden Hospice Colorado in Glenwood Springs. Harden’s existing shareholders retained the company’s long-term care business.

The purchase price paid by Gentiva was $408.8 million, consisting of $355 million in cash and $53.8 million in Gentiva common stock. Gentiva funded the cash portion of the purchase price through available cash and a new credit facility. As part of the new credit facility, the company entered into a new $825 million term loan facility which was used to fund the transaction and refinance its existing term loans.
